We offer a variety of Trusts depending on your circumstances and the outcome you would like to achieve.

Flexible Life Interest Trust Wills

A Flexible Life Interest Trust can protect your significant assets, for example property or financial investments, and ensure their value is passed on to your descendants or whomever you choose.

Why use a Flexible Life Interest Trust?

If you are married or in a civil partnership a Flexible Life Interest Trust guarantees who will benefit from your assets. It prevents your assets being redirected elsewhere if your surviving partner were to;

– Remarry – This will invalidate any existing Will which may include how your share of assets should be distributed.

– Write a new Will – Which may change their wishes and not include directions as to how your assets should be distributed.

A Flexible Life Interest Trust can also allow a nominated person to benefit from the trust, whilst insuring that the Trusts capital value is protected for those you intended.

A Discretionary Trust can protect your vulnerable beneficiaries by allowing you to appoint Trustees. The Trustees will assist your beneficiaries by managing their inheritance.
